Relaxin increases insulin-like growth factors (IGFs) and IGF-binding proteins of the pig uterus in vivo.

Abstract

Relaxin promotes growth of reproductive tissues, including the uterus. Although we have evidence of a role for insulin-like growth factor I (IGF-I) in mediating relaxin-induced growth of porcine granulosa cells in vitro, the mechanism of action by which relaxin enhances uterine growth has not been identified. To investigate a role for the uterine insulin… (More)
